The Spring 2016 OSM US Mapathon events will take place in the weekend of May 14-15.

Organizing

Do you want to run your own Mapathon? Yes! It's fun and not hard to do. To get started, have a look at some of the other Mapathons listed below for inspiration. Decide on a place and time, and perhaps a theme, and start spreading the word through Meetup and / or other local event listings! Need help? Email the board at board@openstreetmap.us, talk to fellow organizers on the #local Slack channel (sign up here if you're not yet a Slack team member) or ask on the talk-us mailing list!

Theme

We haven't decided yet! Some ideas:

  • Outdoor -- Map Your Local Public Garden / Park
  • Indoor -- Old Import Tidying (see for example the Old Aerodromes challenge on MapRoulette)
